English Premier League Review, Mid-Week: EPL Talk Podcast

Posted on by admin

Only one of the English Premier League’s top six clubs entering mid-week action came away with three points from Tuesday and Wednesday fixtures, and unfortunately for those looking for the title race to stay as close as possible, that club was league-leading Manchester United, winning 2-1 on Tuesday versus Stoke. While Manchester City enticed Arsenal to a 0-0, Wednesday draw at the Emirates, both Tottenham and Chelsea lost (to Everton and Wolves), with Bolton drawing at home to Wigan.

Making his return to the EPL Talk podcast, Kartik Krishnaiyer joins Laurence McKenna and myself to talk about those results, the title race, whether Chelsea is in it, and what of Liverpool after the Reds’ 3-1 loss at Ewood Park.

This is the first of two shows we’ll distribute to end the week. The second, released tomorrow, will look forward to the third round of FA Cup action as well as discuss some of the more eye-opening rumors from the early transfer window.

    Where is the RSS feed for the podcast subscription? I see the iTunes subscribe link (which I won’t use) but no feed for other podcast software.

    20 minutes of talk about the top 6, more than 10 to talk about every aspect of Liverpool alone, and the last 10 minutes or so to other games, including joking around about Newcastle winning 5-0, nothing said about West ham’s managerial crisis (despite giving a lot of airtime about Rafa) and a couple of sentences for West Brom. Poor all round coverage.

    • Richard Farley says:

      Thanks for your feedback, Dan, though I respectfully disagree. Liverpool was the big story yesterday. Top of the table is always prime material. We can never get to everything.

  3. WalesAndy says:

    Last night was the worst night of football in a very long time for me, basically because it was almost the best possible night for Mufc fans.

    I watched the Arsenal game, which after the 20th or so minute was one of the most boring games I’ve ever watched. City battered down the hatches after Arsenal smashed the post a few times, which made the game a boring 0-0. The best result for United. Spurs lost 2-1, and perhaps Bale for the United game after he came off injured, and Chelsea lost of course, no surprise there with their recent form, and I bet it was really nice for them watching Liverpool fall further down the table.

    To make things worse, next up is an FA cup weekend yay!!! 80% of the British population hate FA cup weekends. I’ll probably end going to watch a blue square premier game. I’m looking forward to the next set of premier league games, already.

    • Richard Farley says:

      We didn’t even cover the attitude going into the FA Cup weekend. On tomorrow’s show we talk a lot about this weekend’s matches, but we should have addresses the yawn (which, we didn’t).

    Appears there’s a download problem: I can’t download it on the Zune software. I even tried using the URL a few comments above to set up a new subscription, no luck. Downloading directly from the site failed too. Anything the matter?

  5. Edikan Umana says:

    I don’t think city can win it. You’re right Richard that they’ve been steady but they don’t have the experience of a title run-in. With the way Mancini has them playing, he’s trying to make sure they qualify for 4th. I think it will be between us and Arsenal.

    • Richard Farley says:

      Hi Edikan:

      As I get older, I start buying into the experience argument more and more. Perhaps that’s knowledge. Perhaps that’s confirmation bias – me wanting to be smarter than my younger self.

      I guess I think it’s more likely that City fades than hangs around, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re still talking about their chances come May.

      I sure would make things more interesting.

      • Edikan Umana says:

        Evidently, I think it will come down to how mancini uses his team. When you have city fans telling me and more or less mancini himself saying that because David Silva is not playing, City is just going to set up shop, I think that’s ridiculous. Sure they got a point but they rode their luck in that game and if anyone of those shots had fallen in the net I’m pretty sure City would have lost that game and I think plenty of people’s views would be changed.

        It’s possible that they could be still in with a good chance come May but I just don’t see it happening. Not enough experience and Mancini can’t expect his team to just flip a switch and be brilliant at attacking. They’ve got the squad for it but by making another signing, he has to reshuffle things so City could lose some consistency there.

        For the title race in general, I’m not going to say for sure yet. No side has really pulled away nor looks they want it that much. Obviously any side would want to win the premier league but no side has been outstanding. That could very well change but I’m reserving judgment til Mid- February or maybe even early March depending how things play out. Those two months in my opinion will be the most crucial ones in shaping where the title might land this year. I know there are still big games to play in April and May but by then, it’s whether or not the team on top (assuming they dont have a large lead) can maintain that lead. Should be exciting.

        P.S when’s the next podcast coming out? Been waiting for it.

    Ta Gaffer. Works fine.

  7. Ryan says:

    I enjoy the podcasts, but whoever is breathing into the mic whenever someone else is talking is kinda distracting.

    • Richard Farley says:

      I completely agree, and I’m the guy who’s breathing. About 8 minutes into the record I think I messed with a setting or connection and the volume on my end went up, picking up every breath. I tried a new microphone for this show, but trust me, Ryan, that microphone is going away.
